Version: *F

 

Question:

Which platform files should be used for CYBT-353027-EVAL kit in the WICED® Studio 6.2 or later?

 

Answer:

CYBT-353027-EVAL kit includes a fully integrated and certified Bluetooth Smart Ready wireless module (CYBT-353027-01).

Make the following changes to the WICED Studio 6.2 to start using the CYBT-353027-EVAL kit platform:

  1. Download CYBT_353027_EVAL_PLATFORM_FILES.zip attached with this KBA.
  2. Save and extract the downloaded file in your computer.
  3. Navigate to CYBT_353027_EVAL_PLATFORM_FILES_6_2.zip and extract to this folder. This is used for WICED 6.2; if you want to use a previous version of WICED, you can extract the zip accordingly.
  4. Navigate to CYT_353027_EVAL_PLATFORM_FILES > platforms > CYBT_353027_EVAL and copy this folder.
  5. Paste the folder in the WICED Studio 6.2 folder path …\ WICED-Studio-6.2\20706-A2_Bluetooth\Platforms\. Figure 1 shows the location of folder in the WICED Studio 6.2.

  6. Navigate to CYBT_353027_EVAL_PLATFORM_FILES\Wiced-BT\tier2\brcm\libraries\lib\20703, then copy FM25Q04_sflash.a.
  7. Paste and replace FM25Q04_sflash.a file in WICED-Studio-6.2\20706-A2_Bluetooth\Wiced-BT\tier2\brcm\libraries\lib\20703\ as shown in Figure 2.

  8. Include FM25Q04_sflash.a in the makefile.mk of the user’s application project. Figure 3 shows an example for the hello_sensor application project. FM25Q04_sflash.a must be included in the makefile if application firmware performs NVRAM write or read operations (a serial flash device (NVRAM) is available in the CYBT-353027-01 module).
